Imaging the Injured Child: Who, When, and How? (T)
This session has been identified and designated as Credit to Meet ACS Accreditation/Verification Requirements for Trauma.
There is a national trend toward reducing the amount of ionizing radiation that children receive. Numerous institutions are devising methods to evaluate the acutely injured child avoiding unnecessary exposure to radiation, without compromising care and safety. This panel will discuss current trends and present data regarding Computed Tomography (CT) scanning vs. FAST (Focused Assessment Sonography for Trauma) vs. prospective clinical pathways for imaging. This session is aimed at pediatric and adult general, trauma, and rural surgeons.
